    Error each time Perl file opened in GVIM

    I have recently started learning Perl programming, I am using GVIM as my editor.

    Initially I didn't have any problems, but since I have reinstalled my operating system I get the following error every time I try to open a .pl file:

    Can't call method "process" on an undefined value at (eval 28) line 3.
    The number following eval (i.e. 28 in this example) seems to be incrementing each time I try to open a file.

    I can press Enter to continue, but obviously I'd rather know what's causing the problem and fix it.

    I would appreciate any help on this.

    I had a very similar problem:
    Code:
    Can't call method "process" on an undefined value at (eval 14) line 5.
    Upon closing and reopening vim it gave an error about Perl::Tags missing so I installed it with
    Code:
    sudo -H cpan
    install Perl::Tags
    and now the error is gone !
